Founded By 
The Late John Ross Robertson, 1857 

Much unnecessary work and many misunderstandings could be avoided if Old 
Boys would inform the office of changes of address. 

This magazine is only what Old Boys make it, by supplying news of them- 
selves or others and articles or letters. 

This issue went to press in November.

The boys relied with 120. 
Peter Cox arranged this pleasant 
if not victorious day. 


This year the Rugby match was 
played on a lovely day and, although 
the field was very soft, Alec McBain 
had the bad luck to hurt an ankle. 
Altogether it was a well-played and 
enjoyable match in which the Old 
Boys had the satisfaction of inflict- 
ing on the College team its second 
defeat of the season, 7-5. Bill Leckie 
is to be thanked for organizing it. 
The team was: Bill Turville, Gar 

MacGinnis, Don Grant, Don Robin- 
son, Mac Hogarth, Jerry Aziz, John 
Hanna, Chris Wahlroth, John Math- 
ers, Sunny O'Sullivan, Greg Leish- 
man, Robin Logie, Doug Kennedy,

Alec McBain, Bob Bazos, John Bir- 
rell, Ron Chisholm, Jim Cowan, Ted 
Prowse, Bill Hewitt (coach). 


This year for the first time the Old 
Boys fielded a soccer team and beat 
the College 2-0. The team was : Bill 
Crossin, Hugh Wareham, Art Gurr, 
Tony Rolph, Henry Best, Hugh Row- 

an, Bill Rolston, Frank De Weerdt, 
Bill Webb, Ken Baxter, Doug Tisdall, 
Glynn Wlliams. The scorers were

Jerry Whatmough (42-52) and his 
parents, Professor and Mrs. What- 
mough, gave a small dinner for Old 
Boys, and their wives in the Boston 
area when the Principal was there 
in June. 

Rev. R. E. Evans arranged a gath- 
ering for the Principal when he was 
in New York in June. 


This summer finds me looking over 
Latouche Island for encouraging 
mineral deposits but so far with not 
too much success. I leave the end of 
this month to rejoin the family back 
east. You may have heard from Dr. 
Sowby that Hugh, Jr. was born in 
June, and from word received all 
are doing splendidly. 

Our last get-together in New York 
was disappointing. The lack of Old 
Boys is due to their inertia. This is 
a characteristic of New Yorkers and 
is something I outlined to you once 
back at the College. However, we 
are going to flood the mails this fall 
for a gathering in February and hope 

that it will be successful. 

Doing the geophysical work for us 
here is Joe Crosby who informed me 
of the whereabouts of "Harpo" Bald- 
win last September in Sherbrooke, 
Quebec. Joe had left Harpo in Are- 
quipa, Peru, this June to come up to 
this job, and will be returning next 
month. Harpo was married this last 
4th July to Senorita Rivertti Salas. 
A recent letter from the lad goes as 
follows : 

"We have finished our cave-man 
life. Pulse unit and geophysical 
camp came out on an impressive 
twenty-seven burro train. We are 
now pulsing the village of Yarabam- 
ba, causing great excitement among 
the local populace. 

"One night Baldwin became lost 
in the lonely desert, was rescued by a 
band of pilgrims who revived him 
with pisco. (About 120 proof of Per- 
uvian drink). 

"Senoritas continue to rate high 
... and Baldwin's romance has 
proceeded further and many kilo- 
meters of red tape have now been un- 
ravelled. Wedding takes place on 
July 4th, obviously not Baldwin's in- 
dependence day." 

Other news of Old Boys in New 


York is brief. Bob Saunders, who 
went to the College during the War 
and came from England, dropped in 
last winter to say hello. He was over 
from Lloyd's and was paying a visit 
stateside and boning up on Yankee 

The Rev. Richard Evans has left 
on a quick tour of Europe, the Near 
East and Russia as head of the World 
Parliament of Religions. He was 
last seen by this writer running full 
speed crosscorner at Park and 42nd 
and leaving angry brakes behind, dis- 
appeared into the caverns of Grand 

Which must be some sort of cross- 
roads for I ran headon into O. B. 
O'Brien. Being a harried commuter 

now, I had scarcely time to exclaim 
surprise at seeing him. He was 
rushing for a train back to Toronto. 

John Weigand is putting together 
film for Louis DeRochement in New 
York. He is also studying on the 
side for his Master's Degree. There 
is one Old Boy who does not have 
much time on his hands! 

Jim Douglas takes himself down 
to WMGM in the small hours and 
makes sure that the next day's pro- 
grammes go on without a hitch. 

This goes out on the weekly plane 
which hasn't been making it. Plenty 
of rain and fog in this country. My 
best to all there. 

Hugh Douglas. 


From the magazine Time 

A warm sun shone brightly on the 
billiard-green playing field. Robins 
chirped in the first-leafing oaks over- 
head, and the flat crack of cricket 
bats rang through the air. On To- 
ronto's finest pre-summer day of the 
year, the teams of Upper Canada Col- 
lege and the Toronto Cricket Club 
met last week for their 118th annual 

Upper Canada's eleven was again 
soundly beaten by the older, more ex- 
perienced club team. Cricket's pop- 
ularity has waned at the school in 
recent years, and only a handful of 
spectators turned out. But neither 
the score nor the public interest mat- 
tered too much. What was impor- 
tant was that Upper Canada was 
carrying on a traditon. The first 
match with the club was played in 
1836, and the rivalry has been un- 

"A Cargo of Masters." Tradition 
is important at Upper Canada Col- 
lege, which this year is observing its 
125th anniversary. British Major- 
General Sir John Colborne, who 
fought with Wellington at Waterloo, 
founded the school when Toronto 
was the muddy town of York. Upper 
Canada, as the province of Ontario 
was then called, still had no univer- 
sity, but Sir John decided that what 
was needed even more was a "minor 
college" (i.e., preparatory school) 
where well bred youngsters of good 
family could be strictly trained in 
the classics, mathematics and dis- 
cipline. He sent to Oxford for a 
"cargo of masters," set up the school 
in what is now the heart of down- 
town Toronto, and dreamed that it 
might become for the young colony 
what the great English public 
schools of Harrow and Eton were to 


the mother country. 

Over the years Upper Canada has 
fulfilled Sir John's hopes in its own 
Canadian way. Colonel A. R. Dunn, 
who rode at Balaklava with the Light 
Brigade and became the first Cana- 
dian to win the Victoria Cross, was a 
U.C.C. graduate. Humorist Stephen 
Leacock studied there. The roster of 
alumni includes Tory Leader George 
Drew, Artist Sir Wyly Grier, Toron- 
to's Mayor Allan Lamport and the 
late Hume Wrong, Canadian Am- 
bassador to the U.S. During World 
War II no fewer than 26 Old Boys 
were Canadian generals. 

695 Students. Although it has con- 
tributed heavily to the country's 
military annals, Upper Canada is not 
a military institution. Its 695 stu- 
dents follow Ontario's basic public- 
school currculum, but this is rounded 
out with carefully chosen extra-cur- 
ricular activities. Young journalists 
work on the school Times; embryo 
scientists keep busy with electronic 
equipment and model planes; bud- 
ding politicians debate in the Curfew 
Club. The school is nondenomina- 
tional, but many of its headmasters, 
including the incumbent, Dr. Cedric 
Sowby, have been Anglican clergy- 
men. Each school day begins with a 
short service in the prayer hall. 

For more than 50 years Upper 
Canada has received no public sup- 
port. It is entirely dependent on 
fees and a small alumni endowment. 
Compared with the free public 
schools, and Upper Canada education 
is costly (tuition and board run to 
around $1,400 a year). But many 
Canadian parents are willing to pay 
the price: enrolment applications 
usually exceed the accommodations. 

There is still wide agreement with 
the opinion of Charles Dickens, who 
visited the school in 1842 and praised 
it in his American Notes. "In the 
college of Upper Canada," Dickens 
wrote, ". . . . a sound education in 
every department of polite learning 
can be had." 





ON TUESDAY, SEPT. 6th, 1881 

New pupils will be enrolled at ten

Very great improvements have been 
made during July and August, in the 
internal arrangements of the boarding- 
house, and to meet the demand of ap- 
plicants from the country for admis- 
sion, arrangements have been com- 
pleted by which twelve junior pupils 
will be received into one of the Master's 
residence on the College grounds. 

Tuition fee, $12.50, $11.50 and $10.50

At the end of the school year two 
of the College's most loyal and effi- 
cient friends retired from the staff. 
Mrs. Fawcett retired after 21 years 
as matron of Wedd's House, having 
previously retired from her work in 
the Old Boys' office. She lives in 
Toronto. John Riley, the fifth head 
carpenter in the College's 125 years, 
retired to live in Richmond Hill. 

Mr. Dawson left the Prep and Mr. 
Sadleir the Upper School, to go to 
Oxford and Cambridge respectively 
and Mr. Zaleski to go into business. 

Mr. Elmer Vuorimaki has come 
from Queen's to the Prep as a house- 
master. Capt. Donald Keeling, form- 
erly in charge of music in the Pakis- 
tan army, now with the 48th High- 
landers, teaches instrumental music 
in the Prep and Upper School. Mr. 
John Grube, B.A., (Trinity College) 
comes to teach Maths and English in 
the Upper School after graduate 
work at Toronto and Princeton. Mr. 
John Symons from Trinity College, 
Dublin, teaches Modern Lanuages. 


Mr. Patrick Lyndon, M.A. (Worcester 
College, Oxford), L.R.A.M. (London) 
has come from St. Bernard's School, 
New York, to teach English. 


Prize Day, with fine weather, 
seemed unusually light-hearted, al- 
though Sir Archiband Nye, the High 
Commissoner for the United King- 
dom, who was to have been the guest 
of honour, had met an accident while 
rding; Lay Nye, who most graciously 
presented prizes in his stead and 
asked for a half-holiday, gave assur- 
ance that he was too tough to be 
beaten by a mere horse though she 
herself regarded the horse as highly 
dangerous, at both ends, and uncom- 
fortable in the middle. 

Provost Seeley of Trinity College 
who came at the last hour to make 
make the main speech likened the 
Principal's possition to that of the 
woman who having spoiled the roast 
called her husband at his office to 
to "bring home some calves' brains 
and, if you can't get brains, get ton- 
gue or something else cheap" and he 
likened his own position to that of 
the pickanninny who fallng into a 
barrel of molasses prayed, "0 Lord, 
give me a mouth big enough for the 

The Principal, in his speech, could 
point with pride to the results at 
matriculation when over 92% of the 
papers were passed, 36% with first 
class honours, 51 boys getting com- 
plete honour matriculation and the 
following open scholarships being 

The Peter Larkin in General Pro- 
ficiency at Trinity by S. H. E. Clark- 

The Provost F. H. Cosgrave in 
General Proficiency at Trinity by B. 
D. Lister. 

The E. G. Strathy in Commerce and 
Finance at Trinity by A. B. Noxon. 

The J. P. Bckell at S.P.S. by T. G. 

The J. Nicoll at Bishop's by J. H. 

The Leonard McLaughlin went to 
S. H. E. Clarkson and then by rever- 
sion to B. D. Lister, while the Upper 
Canada-Trinity went to A. B. Noxon. 

The first team coached by Mr. Gil- 
ham with the assistance of Roy Mc- 
Murtry, won the championship for 
the first time since 1948. In exhiti- 
ton games they beat De La Salle, 
Forest Hill, East York and Bathurst 
and suffered their only defeat, by a 
single point, at the hands of North 

The first Little Big Four game was 
played at St. Andrew's on a fine 
afternoon and although the College 
started slowly they ended with the 
decisive score of 22-7. 

Meanwhile on our grounds T.C.S. 
had overwhelmed Ridley which meant 
that when they came to play our team 
here it appeared to be the critical 
game. It was indeed an even one; 
after each team had scored a touch- 
down T.C.S. got ahead by blocking 
a kick and getting away with the ball 
for a touchdown. Our team however 
ended going strong to win 13-11. 

A very large crowd had watched 
that game. About as many went to 
St. Catharines to watch the last 
game, against Rdley which our team 
defeated 28-6. 

The boys of the team were: Sandy 
Lewis, captain, son of C. A. Lewis 


f20-'27) ; Brook Ellis, vice-captain, 
son of J F. Ellis C22-'25) ; Peter Cay- 
lor, Lionel Conacher, Ted Graham, 
Ronald Walbank, who were the only 
old colours, and John Elder, Harvie 
McElwain, Bob Johnson, Hugh Clark- 
son, son of Geoff Glarkson ('19-27), 
Bill Twible, George Leggett, Gordon 
Ritchie, Tom Godwin, son of Ernest 
Godwin ('18-23), Clay Powell, Peter 
Eby, Bob Brown, Bill Rynard, Tim 
Chisholm, Jerry Diakiw, Tony Boeckh 
son of George Boeckh ('21-28), 
Geoff Seagram, son of J. E. F. 
Seagram, ('18-'21), Duff Scott, son 
of Eric Scott ('17-'23), Peter Sisam, 
Michael Vickers. 

The second team, coached by Mr. 
Brennan, with John Stevens captain 
and Bob Rose vice-captain, beat Ap- 
pleby first team twice, T.C.S. second 
twice, U.T.S. second once, St. An- 
drew's second once, tied with Law- 
rence Park and lost once to each of 
Lakefield first and Pickering first. 

The under 16, coached by Mr. Gal- 
loway, with Jim Stratford captain 
and Frank Roberts (son of A. Kelso 
Roberts '15-'16) vice-captain, beat St. 
Andrew's twice, broke even with 
T. C. S. and with De La Salle, beat 
Ridley once and lost twice to Hill- 

The under 15, coached by Mr. Sharp 
with Douglas Young and Jack Way 
co-captains, beat St. Andrew's twice, 
T.C.S. once, lost twice to Ridley and 
to De La Salle, broke even with Lake- 
field and tied with and beat Runny- 

Wedd's won the senior house lea- 
gue, Mowbray's the junior. 

The Prep team, coached by Mr. 
Greatrex with Jim Hayhurst captain 
and Michael Innes vice-captain, beat 
St. Andrew's and Lakefield, lost to 
T.C.S. and Ridley and won four 
other games. 


The first soccer team, coached by 
Mr. Gallimore with Edgar Bracht 
captain and Tim Gibson vice-captain, 
beat T.C.S. and Pickering each twice, 
tied with and beat St. Andrew's and 
beat the big R.M.C. team, to complete 
another season without a loss. They 
had suffered one defeat in 1953 but 
before that had been unbeaten in 25 
consecutive games 

We would like a go at Ridley. 

The second soccer team, coached 
by Mr. Harrison with Ben Wright 
(son of Ned Wright '09-'18) captain 
and Fred Beck (son of Carl Beck '16- 
'17) vice-captain, won all its games, 
two with each of T.C.S. and St. 
Andrew's, one with Pickering. 

Wedd's won the house league. 

The Prep team, coached by Mr. 
Schafter, with Brian Maguire (son 
of Herbert Maguire '20-'28) captain 
and Alberto Lazarus vice-captain, 
beat T.C.S., Pickering, St. Andrew's 
and Hillfield. 


In the senior cross county John 
Elder won, followed by Sandy Lewis 
(son of C. A. Lewis '20-27) and Keith 
Bromley, with Wedd's the winning 
house. In the intermediate it was 
Peter White, Dick Hamilton (son of 
J. H. Hamilton, '28-'32), Michael 
Vickers and Wedd's house. In the 
junior it was Tom Powell (son of T. 


R. Powell '29-'33), George Magee, 
Doug Taylor and Wedd's and Mc- 
Hugh's tied. 


The kicking competition now in- 
cludes passing. Stephen McLean won 
the senior, John Cooke the intermed- 
iate, George Deratnay the junior. 


This year it was the turn of U.C.C. 
to exhibit paintings by pupils of in- 
dependent schools which were sent 
here by schools as far west as the 
Pacific coast. 

An exhibition of paintings by Prep 
boys was to be seen on television. 

A very good combined concert of 
Prep and Upper School was given in 

The senior reading competition 
was won by Tony Keith, the junior by 
Willson McTavish. The senior speak- 
ing was won by Stephen Leggett, the 
junior by Donald Martyn. 


Mr. Maskell again took a part of 
22 boys to the Rockies and as far as

The new building at the Prep is 
a combination of a gymnasium and a 
theatre. The stage is a permanent 
one on the West side with plenty of 
off-stage space, lights which are as 
full as those used for the opera at 
the main building but can be dis- 
mounted in ten minutes to free the 
room for basketball. The seats are 
stored under the stage. The floor of 
the stage is canvas over plywood 
which makes it quiet and gives sure

All royalties from the sale of the

(From the boys 9 "Current Times' 9 ) 

In its one hundred and twenty-five 
years of history, Upper Canada has 
had a total of seventeen principals. 
It is interesting to note that during 
the same period of time, it has had 
four head carpenters. 

Now, after twenty-four years with 
the College, John Riley is retiring at 
the end of his term. 

He was born in Dumfries, South- 
ern Scotland in 1883 and came to 
Canada in 1907. He did construction 
work until 1930, when he came to 
the school. At that time Dr. Grant 
was the principal. The school has 
undergone a number of changes 
since John came, among them the 
renovation in 1932 and the important 
addition of the boarding houses and 

Few people, perhaps, realize the 
importance of John's job. He is in 

charge of all repairs, for instance, 
and in a place this size, that can run 
into a lot of work. He is also in 
charge of much of the work, such as 
erecting platforms and so on, con- 
nected with many school events, — the 
opera, the Boxing Tournament, Prize 
Day, and many more. However, 
anyone who has had occasion to work 
with John will not only be able to 
appreciate the difficulty of his job, 
but also, especially with school 
dances, his willingness to help out 
and the friendly interest which he 
has always shown. We shall cer- 
tainly miss seeing John in the com- 
fortable mess of his shop next year. 

John will move to Richmond Hill, 
after leaving the school, to live, as he 
himself said yesterday, "The life of 

We wish him the best of luck! 



Need of Boarders 

Old Boys, who want to help the 
College by encouraging friends to 
send their sons, may find the follow- 
ing facts useful. U.C.C.has now a 
record enrolment and the Upper 
school boarding houses are full, but 
a few more boarders for the Prep 
would be welcome even if it meant 
having a few less day boys, because 
it is those who board throughout 
their school days that can develop 
the best leadershiip. 

Fees and Scholarships 

Fees for boarders are now $1500 
($750) in the Upper School, $1400 
($750) in the Prep; for day boys 
$650 ($250) and $600 ($250). The 
figures in the brackets being the 
pre-war fees, it will be noted that 
while the fee for a day boy at the 
Upper School has increased by 160% 
the additional charge for boarding 
has increased by the lesser amount 
of 80%. 

The number and value of scholar- 
ships has been increased. There is 
now one of $1,500 annually though it 
is not open for competition this year. 
Boys entering Grade IX or over are 
eligible for this, younger boys for 
"A Boarding School in the Country" 

Although Toronto is larger than 
St. Catherines or Port Hope, on week- 
ends our boarders can get out into 
the countryside at Norval where the 
College has a sleeping lodge for Prep 
boys and a converted farm house for 
Upper School. 

A generation ago on Saturdays and 
Sundays the older boarders desert- 
ed the place almost en masse. But 

now there is something doing — 
sports, movies, meetings, hobbies, 
music, or parties, — every Saturday 
and Sunday night — and some after- 
noons. The amount of leave has 
been cut in half for this generation 
but the striking thing is that board- 
ers now do not ask for their full 
quota, even when their homes are in 
town, and on week-end the place is 
much frequented by day boys who 
frequently make friends with board- 
ers and invite them out. So it must 
be a happy enough place. If the 
boys according to age are allowed to 
see professional games, movies (as 
they are at rival schools too) as well 
as concerts, opera, or ballet (which 
are not available elsewhere), it is 
because a change of scene is healthy. 
Discipline Without Fagging 

Fagging and caning by prefects 
has gone, but discipline is stronger 
and the boys' collective pride in their 
school and house makes them bring, 
or force, each other along not only 
in competitive sports, but in neatness, 
enthusiasm and even studies. In the 
15 years that records have been kept 
since the general inter-house com- 
petition began the boarders have con- 
sistently led. The same applies at 
the Prep. 

Improved Education 

Not only have boarders shared 
with day boys in the improvement of 
buildings and expansion of staff, 
they have had more than their share. 
Seaton's and Wedd's buildings and 
furnishings are probably unequalled 
in their class on this continent or 
overseas for beauty and comfort. 
That such beautiful environment af- 


fects their education is shown by the 
fact that for 22 years the boys have 
not defaced their walls or furniture. 
Although there are no more boarders 
than a generation ago, more staff 
look after them. For instance, in the 
Upper School besides the nurse and 
the lady superintendent as before, 
two matrons devote their time ex- 
clusively to the boarders' care as well 
as a second nurse; similarly in the 
Prep. Masters now especially con- 
cerned with boarders are: 
Seaton's— J. H. Biggar ('18-'26), D. 

D. Maskell. 
Wedd's— W.G. Bassett, W. Blackburn. 

Prep— R. B. Howard (*28-'39), assist- 
ed by four Junior Housemasters. 
In addition F. C. Brennan, E. M. 
Davidson ('25-'31), A. F. Killip, R. M. 
Law, I. K. Shearer and other resident 
men give much time to them. Note 
three Old Boys in the list. 


As in the past boarding at U.C.C. 
offers for boys: 

1. Traditions to mould them. 

2. Regular hours. 

3. Training in self-reliance. 

4. Rubbing shoulders with others 
from all over the world. 


Owen Classey died on September 
7th, 1954. Your editor would have 
been hard but to find words suitable, 
because for him personally this man 
was the best master a school could 
have. But it happened that Paul 
Boultbee had sent the following 
letter just ten weeks before, which, 
(it is hoped that family and friends 
will agree), is the sort of thing Owen 
Classey liked, however much is left 

"To people, away from Toronto, 
who never see the College and who 
have lost touch with many old chums, 
"Old Times" fills a real void. Glanc- 
ing through it impels reflection to 
the years which shaped us for 
better or worse. In this number my 
eye spotted the names of two persons 
who are vividly associated in the 
minds of many of those who were at 
school in the Roaring Twenties. If the 
corn is not too tall, I thought a few 
lines about these two might be remin- 
scent, especially to those who, almost 

daily during the years 1925 to 1928 
climbed to the top of Wedd's wing 
to take part in French Literature and 
Composition and in the French Club 
which was so popular at that time. 

"Senior French classes were then 
conducted at the above described 
high level, in a room-and-a half set- 
ting, hardly a class room, for there 
were to be found a phonograph, 
French and Spanish records — "now 
repeat slowly — La bonne gardera les 
enfants quand leur maman sera dans 
la campagne," and recent editions 
of "l'lllustration" and "La Presse." 
It was a study, and perhaps that is 
one secret of the attraction. But 
the big attraction at all times was its 
presiding officer. Owen Classey — 
his slim, small figure, black hair and 
crisp moustache — was brisk and 
sparkling in all respects. It became 
quite natural, in his class, for a 
question in French to be intelligently 
answered in the same language. It 
was fun to most of us, to assume this 


guise which would be so useful if one 
travelled through Quebec or to 
France, even. Mr. Classey perform- 
ed this feat of having languages ex- 
pected, respected and treated as 
normal to our lasting satisfaction. 

"With many others I share parti- 
cular gratitude to Mr. Classey for 
the informality and confidence he 
imparted through the French Club 
which met on Sunday evenings for 
lectures, talks given by boys, and 
conversation all in French with one 
disgraceful exception involving my- 
self. One Sunday I was "on deck" 
to give a short narrative before the 
group. Having recently become very 
friendly with the family of Rod van 
Tulleken (*24-'26) who had just ar- 
rived from Holland, I had learned 
a few phrases and sentences in 
Dutch. I was aghast suddenly 
to see the expression of my 
audience of solemn 14-year-olds 
in the French Club became hazy and 
their jaws drop in stupefaction. 
"Does he need a doctor?" they 
seemed to say. It was quite good 
Dutch, I'm sure. 

"Later I was proud when Mr. 
Classey put me, with his son Joe and 
Stanley Ryerson, in a three part, one 
act French play, "Le Cuvier", to be 
presented in the Prayer Hall and 
later at the University, before a 
group of French teachers. As I re- 
call it Mrs. Classey produced some 
tens of yards of red muslin which 
she sewed into an enormous costume. 
When several pillows had been add- 

ed I was ready — La Femme (big bra- 
zen "Tais-toi, Jacquimot!" type). 
The French was good, all critics 
agreed. But when La Femme was 
pushed into her own laundry barrel, 
6' x 4' x 4' — that was sensational ! 

"However when starting this piece, 
I did not set out to reminisce on such 
a personal plane. 

"There was one student who made 
our French days full of fun. Rest 
assured, he did not belong to the 
French Clubs. His being carrot top 
contrasted vividly with the master's 
black, his exceeding corpulence 
with the slim, trim figure of the 
master, and just as strongly, his ob- 
stinate lack of French with the 
polished proceedings of the class 
room. Ed. Deeks. "Deeks, read the 
passage in the third paragraph!" 
Pause. "Je sweess sewer la tab-el." 

"No, Deeks, you great not like 


"Every day the same trouble, and 
every day a beautiful fresh explosive. 
Three years of it, what a collection 
if one had written them down! Deeks 
actually wasn't as bad as all that in 
French. I believe he got a pass mark 
in matric, but how he co-operated in 
the game in French class — a good 
laugh every day! Life is not so bad 
when you can run that average. 

"It is over twenty-five years since 
I last ran into either of them, but the 
recollecton can still bring a ready 
smile especially when I see they are 
holding high office in the Association 
one as a Patron, the other as a

"THE S. M." 

Through the generosity of some of 
the Old Boys the Association is to 
have the honour of having our old 
friend the "S. M.", now Major Car- 
penter, as our guest at Founder's 

The very tentative dates of his 
visit so far are: 

New York: Jan. 28 - Feb. 2. 

Ottawa: Feb. 2 - 7. 

Toronto : Feb. 8 - 20 

London: Feb. 21 - 23 

Windsor: Feb. 24 - 26 

Sarnia: Feb. 27 - March 1 

Winnipeg: March 1-8 

Halifax: March 25 - 29 

He will be accompanied by his wife. 
He first came to U.C.C. in 1912 and re- 
turned to it after the first World War. 

He retired in 1928 to Carreglwyd, his 
family's estate where he is constantly 
visited by his four surviving sons and two 
daughters and Old Boys of U.C.C. Jack 
Carpenter, R.A.F., was killed in the Bat- 
tle of Britain. 

Old Boys who wish to extend private 
hospitality to him or to share in our 
collective hospitality may get in touch 
with the offiice or Bob Hendy, Temple 
Building, 62 Richmond St. West, Toronto, 


D'Arcy Manning Dohery is the new 
President of the Association. Son of 
Manning Doherty, once the Minister 
of Agriculture, and brother of the 
playwright and producer Brian Do- 
herty, he entered the Prep at the age 
of ten in 1919. He left U.C.C. at the 
age of seventeen having been promot- 
ed from the Prep to IVA (present 3A), 
having been head prefect of Seaton's, 
having been on the cricket team for 
four years, while two championships 
were won, the rugby for two, the 
hockey for two. He is the only boy 
ever to have been captain of all three. 
In those days McGill had a strong 
rugby team; it relied largely on 
D'Arcy though he is not big. He 
stayed on there for post-graduate 
work in Economics. In the War he 
was with the RCA from 1940 to 1945, 
through Sicily, Italy and North-West 
Europe. He became a major, G.S.O.l, 
H.Q. 1st Cdn Div. He was awarded 
the O.B.E. Now he is a stock-broker 
with Doherty, Roadhouse and Com- 
pany. Recently he was president of 
of the Stock Exchange. He has two 
sous at U.C.C, one of whom is triplet. 


Gordon Adam, our British corre- 
spondent, shows his more serious 
side. His contemporaries will re- 
member him for founding the CUR- 
RENT TIMES which florishes still. 
His humourous articles in its first 
number lampooned his friends the 
masters who, we hope, will not mind 
if we re-publish it some day because 
it was so funny. 

It has been my fortune to visit 
twice since the war, during my tra- 
vels in Greece, one of the great East- 
ern monuments to Christianity, the 
Medieval Byzantine monastry of St. 
Luke of Stiris; and I would like to tell 
you something of this remarkable 

Author's Note: A monograph in 
English, 'St. Luke of Stiris in Phocicf, 
written in the last century by R. W. 
Schultz and S. H. Barnsley is a 
valued scholastic possession of the 
present Abbot and I am indebted to it 
for the historical information about 
the monastery contained in this article. 


place in the hope, if you should be 
in Greece, that you will go to see it. 

The monastery is to be found in 
the province of Phocia to the North 
of the Gulf of Corinth in a mountain- 
ous district, remote, and even by 
standards of travel in Greece, diffi- 
cult of access. It is situated almost 
equidistant from the peaks of Heli- 
con and Parnassus, 'home of the 
Muses'. The waters of the Gulf are 
only about 6 Kms distant to the 
South, but to approach by that short- 
er way would be still more arduous 
than the one I will describe from my 
own field notes. In either case there 
is only one alternative to walking, 
namely mule-back. 

'Set down from the Athens-Delphi 
bus at the Western end of the long 
rising valley below Parnassus, at the 
cross-roads where Oedipus is said to 
have slain his father. To the right, a 
few feet along the upper road which 
leads to the village of Distomon, is a 
small marble memorial with broken 
Cross, in memory of the men of that 
village who were brought to this wild 
uninhabited place and massacred by 
the Germans in the late war as a re- 
prisal for an ambush of Partisans. 
Follow this road, heading West by 
South for about half an hour until 
just beyond the 22 Km stone a poor 
path forks left near to a lone gnarled 
tree, a withered olive. This path leads 
first over wheatfields onto a rocky 
rough-strewn scree, then down into a 
dry watercourse. An hour of this 
and one comes to the primitive vil- 
lage of Steri. After Steri, some 10 
minutes distant, watch for a path to 
t,he right, quite easily defined and 

close to a communal watering place. 
Follow this path so that the cart 
track falls away to the left and dis- 
appears as you go up over the spur 
of two rounded hillocks. The mon- 
astery is an hour's walk from Steri 
on the South side of the second hill, 
and the path will bring you down 
from the crest into it'. 

St. Luke, in whose name the mon- 
astery is dedicated, was a prophet of 
the 9th C, one of those austere as- 
cetics so numerous in the East dur- 
ing the early centuries of Christian- 
ity. He is known variously as the 
'Steriote' after the place of his resi- 
dence and death; the 'Lesser or 
Younger', presumably to distinguish 
him from the Evangelist; and the 
'Wonder-worker' on account of the 
miracles and cures which he 

The great Church which exists to- 
day in the court of the monastery is 
not the original but is of the second 
period of Byzantine building, the 
11th C. It is one of the most perfect 
examples remaining in the East, and 
even at the time of its erection must 
have taken a not unimportant place 
among the great buildings of its day. 
Its proportions are regular; it is built 
in the 'Greek' style, almost square. 
The walls are cased with polished 
marble, but the chief glory is its mo- 
saic-work incomparable in Greece and 
second only to Santa Sophia in Con- 
stantinople. Notwithstanding age and 
earthquake and in 1943 bombing (it 
was thought, wrongly, to be shelter- 
ing Andartes or Partisans), it is the 
finest Church I have seen in all 


Into the central dome is worked 
an enormous mosiac of Our Lord's 
Head — Tantokratoris', and around 
the cupola below are representations 
of the Apostles, and in the third level 
Biblical scenes reminiscent of the 
conception although very different 
in execution of the stone carving in 
the octagonal Chapel house of the 
Cathedral at Salisbury in England. 
The whole fabric is proportioned 
within in the shape of a Cross. Hap- 
pily the Greek Government is con- 
cerned about the mosaics, and skilled 
workmen are now ensuring the pre- 
servation of this treasure. 

In Greece, one hears more about 
the mosaics at Daphni, whose pat- 
tern is similar. Daphni, being proxi- 
mate to Athens, is more easily ac- 
cessible and its fame is due more to 
this accident than to its greater per- 
fection. Because of its remoteness, 
little attention was paid to the mon- 
astery of St. Luke until comparatively 
recent times, but the interest of the 
outside world was encouraged first 
by rumours and then by the descrip- 
tions of the more energetic travellers 
who had penetrated the solitude. This 
same isolation contributed largely to 
the preservation of the monastery in 
the dark centuries when so much else 
in Greece was wantonly sacked or 
wholly destroyed. One has only to 
recall the tragic fate of the Parthe- 
non in Athens itself, used as an 
arsenal for storing ammunition in 
the Veneto-Turkish Wars. 

stands in a solitude in summer but 
becomes in winter the resort of shep- 
herds and their thousands of sheep 
and goats which they bring down 
from the higher exposed places to 
shelter and pasture. We know that 
in the 15th C. the population of the 
monastery itself was about 150. To- 
day there are only 22 monks and an 
Abbot. Although the parent Church 
is not in decline, there is much dif- 
ficulty about finding men prepared 
to accept the hard monastic life, and 
this is a problem common to other 
monasteries in Greece. 

The place of Christianity in the 
story of Greece is apt to be over- 
looked by those of us who live in the 
West. Surrounded as we are in the 
main by the relics of our own Chris- 
tian history, and educated in the 
traditonal paths of Ancient History 
and Classics, we tend to think only 
of Greece in terms of its pre-Chris- 
tian era, of classical temples 
dedicated to pagan dieties, of myth- 
ology and archaeological excavations, 
forgetting that in the Greek Orthodox 
Church we have the cousin and ally of 
our own Faith. The Light shone on 
Greece for many centuries after 
Christ until the land came under 
the domination of the Turk in the 
Eastern Dark Age from the late 15th 
C. Nearly 150 years ago it emerged 
from this eclipse and to-day shines 
brightly, as those who have acqaint- 
ance with that country will know.

The valley where the monastery London, July 1954. 



{From Week-end Magazine) 
By Marjorie Earl 

The day was gray, chill and fore- 
boding. A tall, handsome young Can- 
adian, erect on his glistening mount, 
surveyed the 673 British cavalry 
troops mustering at one end of a long 
valley. Like him, they were eager 
for action. Their red tunics were a 
splash of light against the dark 
background; their faces were fixed 
in anticipation. They had no intima- 
tion that soon they would be hacking 
their way across the bloodiest, silliest 
and most heroic page of miltary his- 

Alexander Robert Dunn, the To- 
ronto boy who had waited impatiently 
for most of his 21 years for this 
moment when he would first see 
action, looked up the valley into the 
distance. At its far end was a 12- 
gun Russian battery, placed wheel to 
wheel. For a mile, from end to end, 
the flanking slopes were heavily de- 
fended by Russian troops and artil- 
lery. Between the heights the valley 
was a death trap of irregular width, 
closing in at the battery. Dunn had 
no intimation that he was about to 
go down in military history as a hero 
and Canada's first winner of the 
Victoria Cross. 

The commander also looked anx- 
iously up the valley. He was frank- 
ly worried. He narrowed the front 
line, moving Dunn and some of his 
most resolute men of the 11th Hus- 
sars to support his flanks in the rear. 
A veritable beau ideal of Victorian 
manhood, Dunn moved with the swift 
economy of a born soldier and horse- 

He was the most impressive-look- 
ing man in the field. He stood a 
magnificent six feet three inches in 
his immaculate jack boots. His gold 
epaulettes glittered flatteringly on 
his massive shoulders. A fair beard 
and cool blue eyes adorned his hand- 
some, young face on which tension 
was now barely discernible. 

Suddenly from the front came the 
order that has been ringing for a 
century in the ears of romantic 
schoolboys : 

"Forward, the Light Brigade! 
Charge for the guns!" When he 
heard it Dunn grasped the hilt of his 
sword, spurred his horse and rode 
resolutely into the impending havoc. 

The Charge of the Light Brigade, 
which took place 100 years ago on 
Oct. 25 at the Battle of Balaclava, 
was so audacious that at first the 
Russian foe failed to grasp it. But 
when they recovered from their in- 
itial shock they rained fury of fire 
on the defenceless Six Hundred. The 
valley floor was strewn with dead 
and dying. As saddles in front be- 
came empty the firm voice of young 
Dunn could be heard urging from the 
rear: "Close in. Close in. Close in 
to the centre." 

Soon the battery was surrounded 
and its gunners cut down by the 
remnants of the 9th Hussars, riding 
first. Dunn and the 11th charged 
furiously behind, their original num- 
ber now reduced to a pitiful hand- 
ful. Poised behind the battery, to 
the right, Dunn saw a squadron of 
Russian cavalry, their lances poised 


for the charge. With a cry he rode 
full ahead, driving them in startled 
confusion back into gorge. 

His triumph was short. Along the 
left prong of a fork created by the 
projection into the valley of a lofty 
ridge, they came upon another de- 
tachment of enemy cavalry. It was 
obvious to Dunn and the three of- 
ficers still riding with the 11th 
Hussars that they would have to fall 
back. They did so, soon to join the 
retreating 4th Light Dragoons who 
had also been in the vanguard of the 
charge. The two regiments now 
numbered only 70 men but again 
their contempt for death confounded 
the enemy. 

Quickly restoring order to their 
decimated ranks, they turned and 
confronted the pursuing Russians. 
Panic-stricken by such audacity, the 
Russians halted and fell back. Sud- 
denly a cry rose above the noise of 
the battle: "Hurrah, it's the 17th 
Lancers!" For a moment the brave 
remnant thought it was saved. But 
the six squadrons of approaching 
cavalry proved to be Russians, not 
British, and they were drawn up to 
cut off a retreat. 

All discipline was now at an end. 
The British turned and every man 
fought to cut his own way to safety. 
Dunn and the other officers now 
brought up the rear. The powerful 
young Canadian, known as one of the 
foremost swordsmen in the British 
army, was an absolute stranger to 
fear as he furiously cut his way 
through the melee of attacking Rus- 

Suddenly he saw his sergeant, 
Bentley, attacked from the rear by 
three Russian lancers. He rushed 

upon them and cut them down single 
handed. A few seconds later he saw 
a Muscovite swordsman overcoming 
Trooper Levett. Again he charged to 
the rescue. When the pathetic hand- 
ful who survived the historic charge 
reached safety, Dunn collapsed in a 
flood of passionate weeping. He 
had slain more Russians than any- 
one else. 

Queen Victoria, who declared that 
"the brilliance of the charge and the 
gallantry and discipline evinced by 
all, have never been surpassed by 
British soldiers under similar cir- 
cumstances," coined a decoration 
for its heroes, the Victoria Cross. 

One was awarded to the 11th Hus- 
sars, and by unaminous choice of his 
comrades it went to Dunn, making 
him the first of 79 Canadians to re- 
ceive this coveted decoration. He 
was also among the first 67 of a total 
of only 1,347 who have received 
this exclusive award since its incep- 
con a century ago. 

Dunn had been chosen from child- 
hood for a brilliant military career. 
He was born in Toronto in 1833, the 
second son of Hon. John Henry Dunn, 
who for more than 20 years was Re- 
ceiver-General of Upper Canada. 
John Dunn was the son of a wealthy 
old Northumberland family. He mi- 
grated to Canada in 1820 and al- 
though he took an active part in Can- 
adian life he remained at heart an 
Englishman. Young Alexander was 
a fearless, headstrong youth who 
wanted to be a soldier almost as soon 
as he was able to express a wish. 

When he was 11 Alexander entered 
Upper Canada College, in Toronto. 
It is not known how long he remain- 
ed. Two or three years later his 


father moved back to England and 
in January, 1848, Alexander entered 
Harrow, where he remained until 
1851. Scholastically he was not bril- 
liant, but he was so handsome, man- 
ly, vigorous and pleasant that he 
soon became immensely polular. He 
excelled in athletics, particularly 
swordsmanship, riding and marks- 
manship. He was also something of 
a show-off. 

On one memorable occasion he 
placed a small cap case on the head 
of a favorite servant and fired at it 
with his pistol at a distance of 16 
yards. Out of 40 shots he hit the 
cap 36 times. 

Through this dangerous demon- 
stration the servant stood steady as 
a rock. Then, as later, Dunn seemed 
able to inspire an almost fanatical 
devotion in his men. 

At 19 he was gazetted as a cornet 
(second lieutenant) in the 11th Hus- 
sars, bursting the buttons of his 
tunic with pride and resoluton to 
bring honor to his regiment. In less 
than two years he landed in the Cri- 
mea, under command of the Earl of 
Cardigan. In September, 1854, he was 
under fire for the first time, but only 
briefly, in a disappointing engage- 
ment, halted almost before it began. 

All through his military life Dunn 
fretted against inactivity, ineffi- 
ciency, the social obligations of the 
Victorian officer and- the Blimpishness 
of Victorian commanders. He was just 
sufficiently roughened by Canadian 
life to be repelled by the foppish 
travelling gentlemen who toured en- 
campments in the Crimea to watch 
battles as though they were football 
games. He was impatient with com- 
manders, like his own, who had time 

to conduct these useless visitors 
around and felt free to dine and 
sleep every night aboard his luxu- 
rious yacht. Unlike most officers in 
the Crimea, Dunn was not absent 
from duty for a single day, and on 
several occasions he was left in 
command of his regiment. 

It was natural to his temperament 
that he should feel slighted and out- 
raged when his record was complete- 
ly ignored and a promotion due him 
went to someone else. After the 
slaughter of Balaclava, two replace- 
ment troops were sent for the 11th 
Hussars. One was given the first 
lieutenant. It was assured that 
Dunn would get the second. But he 
was passed over in favor of a staff 
officer who had never seen action. 
The outcry in the regiment was gen- 
eral. Dunn was bitterly affronted. 
A year later he returned to England 
and resigned his commission. 

Although he was once described by 
a friend as "a most courteous and 
thorough gentleman in word and 
deed," the life of an English gentle- 
man did not suit Dunn. Shortly 
after he was presented to Queen 
Victoria, in February, 1857, to have 
^he Victoria Cross pinned on his 
breast, he returned discontented, to 

Almost immediately, with another 
officer, he sought consolation in ad- 
venture. The two set off on a hunting 
expenition into the wilds of the 
Rocky Mountains. There, for several 
months, he gloried in the dangers of 
shooting buffalo, living among the 
trappers and Indians, camping on the 
Alberta plains or by fir-banked 
mountain streams. 

Toward the end of the year he re- 


turned to Toronto, to find that his 
fame had preceded him. He was a 
Canadian hero. The public adored 
him, hostesses sought to fete him, 
friends of his family were delighted 
to have him back. Dunn was a dif- 
ferent young man. Whenever he was 
asked to tell about his experiences in 
the Crimea, he became stonily silent 
and brushed off all inquiries with, 
"It was nothing, really, I did no more 
than my duty." 

He found Canadian society as tire- 
some as he had found English; soon 
he began to regret his lovers' quarrel 
with the army and long for a recon- 
ciliation. When the Indian mutiny 
broke out and troops were rushed 
from England to suppress it, Dunn 
secured British army approval of a 
plan to raise a regiment in Canada. 
This project was not without its dif- 
ficulties. Labor was scarce and 
wages high, and Canadians were 
neither emotionally nor economically 
threatened by India's defection. 

Dunn, however, was rich, socially 
prominent and a famous soldier. He 
was also charming and persuasive. 
He spent his personal fortune on 
equipment and travel, he expended 
his charm attracting recruits. Men 
had difficulty resisting the invita- 
tion to serve under him. Finally, 
when he had completed his objective, 
he was gazetted as major of the 
100th, or Prince of Wales's Canadian 

Soon after this he went with the 
regiment to England where he moved, 
not to a war front, but to Aldershot. 
Here, in recognition of his record of 
services, he was presented with the 
sword of General Wolfe, at that time 
on display in the Canadian section 

of the Great Exhibition of 1862. This 
honor was quickly followed by an- 
other. The Prince of Wales's com- 
mander, Baron de Rottenberg, retir- 
ed, and Dunn was promoted to lieu- 
tenant-colonel, to succeed him. He 
was in command of a regiment before 
he was 28. 

The Prince of Wales's Regiment 
was eventually posted to Gibraltar, 
where again Dunn suffered from too 
many social obligations and too little 
action. He consoled himself with 
yachting, a sport he loved, and twice 
he nearly lost his life. Once caught 
in a Mediterranean gale, he displayed 
the calm before danger that so im- 
pressed his comrades. As the gale 
increased to a hurricane, battering 
the yacht mercilesssly, he told the 
crew calmly that all was lost, bid 
them goodbye and retired to his cab- 
in. The crew remained on deck, 
waiting for death. Suddenly a Span- 
ish ship hove in sight and, overjoyed, 
they hoisted a distress signal. The 
Spaniards kept them in view and, 
during a short lull in the storm, low- 
ered a boat to rescue them. They 
found Dunn in his cabin, fast asleep. 
Amazed, they asked him how he could 
sleep in such circumstances "Why 
not?" he asked. "I was tired and we 
had done all that we could do." 

In 1864 the Prince of Wales's regi- 
ment was transferred to Malta and 
Dunn became a full colonel, thus be- 
coming the youngest colonel in the 
British army. But even this honor 
did not compensate for stultifying 
inaction. Finally, when he could 
stand it no longer, he transferred to 
the 33rd Regiment, or Duke of Wel- 
lington's Own, stationed in Poona. 
He was second colonel but his su- 


perior was shortly promoted to 
brigadier-general and Dunn became 
acting colonel of the regiment. 

When the 33rd was ordered to form 
part of the Abyssinian Expedition, 
Dunn was wild with joy. But sud- 
denly and without expectation, a 
shadow fell on his pleasure. One 
night when he was dining with a 
friend, he mentioned it. " I am go- 
ing to be killed," he said. "I shall 
never see England or Canada again." 

The feeling persisted, even after 
the regiment reached Abyssinia to 
discover that there were unlikely to 
be many casualties. A few days before 
his death, when he was sitting in his 
tent with an intimate friend, he 
spoke again of his presentiment, this 
time adding rather sadly, "It will be 
soon now." 

In spite of his foreboding he was 
too much a soldier and a gentleman 
to dwell on it or to regret what he 
considered to be inevitable. On the 
morning of January 25, 1868, he 
laughingly set off with the regi- 
ment's medical officer and two native 
bearers on a hunting trip. In his 
ardor for the kill, Dunn wandered off 
after some elusive deer and the party 
became separated. When he grew 
tired, he sat down on a rock to relax. 
He asked his bearer for his brandy 
flask. The neck was stuck, and while 
he struggled with it his gun slipped 
and exploded, discharging the 
contents of both barrels into his 

Dunn leaped up with a cry and 
collapsed into the arms of his terri- 
fied bearer. 'Tut your coat under 
me", he said calmly, "then take off 
my shirt and cover my face with it 
against the sun. Now run for the 

doctor." An hour later when the 
servant returned with the doctor, 
Dunn was dead. 

He was buried at Senafe two days 
later in his uniform. The entire 
camp attended the funeral, most of 
the men weeping unaffectedly. His 
fellow-officers cut locks from his 
hair and kissed his cold face, wetting 
it with their tears. A letter, written 
by one of his friends to his sister in 
England said: "In no regiment was 
ever a commanding officer so missed 
as the one we have so unhappily lost 
— so perfect a soldier, so fine a 
gentleman, so confidence-inspiring a 
leader. He was a friend and felt to 
be such by every man in the regi- 
ment. The regiment will never again 
have so universally-esteemed a com- 

"Little did I think," mourned an- 
other friend, who had breakfast with 
him on the day of his death, "that 
I was looking on his dear old face 
for the last time in life." 

He rests now under a rough rock 
at Senafe, far from England and Can- 
ada, the two homes he loved. The 
rock bears this simple inscription: 
"In memory of A. R. Dunn, V.C., 
Colonel, 33rd Regiment, who died at 
Senafe on the 25th of January, 1868, 
aged 34 years and seven months." 

The following day his kit was sold 
at auction. Everything in it brought 
prices described as "utterly fantas- 
tic." The sword of General Wolfe, 
all that remains, is still in possession 
of his sister's family in England. 
(Alexander Dunn's sword and medals 
are hung in the front hall of the Col- 
lege, along with his portrait and his 
citation as it appeared in the Gazette 
of 27th September, 1857.) 



Dear Old Boy: 

We opened earlier this year, Sept. 
7th, and have had (as usual) one 
event on top of another. Will give 
you a quickie resume of U.C.C. do- 
ings, calendar style so you'll have 
some clue as to what I'm talking 
Sept. 7th to Nov. 13th. 

Perhaps because rugby seems to 
colour our lives in the fall term we 
had best report that U.C.C. had one 
of the nicest AND one of the small- 
est teams we can remember. Under 
the leadership of Sandy Lewis, capt., 
Brook Ellis, vice-capt. and quarter, 
and with Lionel Conacher a colour- 
ful and powerful player (13 touch- 
downs in spite of an injured elbow), 
they made a clean sweep of the Little 
Big Four. Exhibition games with 
Toronto High Schools added to their 
list of victories, and outside schools 
were a little less inclined to enquire, 
"Does your Mother know you are 
out?", by the end of the season. 
Sept. 18th. 

Remember the "Organization of 
Clubs" .... one must decide not 
smply "to be or not to be" (the pre- 
fects decide that for you) but 
whether to debate, paint, play chess, 
struggle with stamps, radio, music 
(long and short hair this year!!) . . 
and, as in your day, long-suffering 
guest speakers still cope with such 
problems as the Curfew Club on 
"Capital punishment", the Travel 
Club goes "by tramp steamer to Eu- 
rope" etc., etc. 
Sept. 29th and Nov. 1st and 2nd. 

Were Parents' nights at Upper 

School. Your turn will come no doubt. 
Of course Mr. Orr, Mr. Mallett, and 
Mr. Bremner have been greeting 
"fathers they had taught" for years. 
It gave us a special kick to meet Jack 
Stafford in his capacity as father at 
the Prep Open-House for their new 
gym. It has always seemed reason- 
able to see Dr. Colin Ross's small fry 
at a U.C.C. rugby game, Casey Cor- 
bett's wee ones at a cricket game, and 
to feed milk and biscuits to, among 
others, Fred Hadden's, Bob Fair- 
head's, and Bob Walkden's small sons 
in the infirmary . . BUT . . . when 
the sons turn up in flannels and 
blazers and wearing school ties it 
makes one feel in the same class as 
Lord Seaton! 
October 15th 

Hurricane Hazel hit Toronto. In 
the midst of real tragedy UCC was 
fortunate, no great damage was 
done; the grounds were a mess with 
broken branches off trees, soon 
cleared up; but from about 3 p.m. 
till mid-night water ran, yes, really 
flowed through the day boy locker 
rooms, and by 7.30 p.m. the engine 
room was flooded, the stoker pits 
were full and all the boilers out. 
Prefects and Senior boys from both 
houses worked in shifts and bailed 
with every available pail even to keep 
abreast of the water. A powerful 
teenage crew clad in swimming 
trunks or old shorts, wet all over (and 
black), singing extracts that seemed 
to them suitable from H.M.S. Pina- 
fore, the Gondoliers, etc, a few plain- 
tive suggestions that Marilyn Bell 
should be giving swimming instruc- 
tions to the less aquatiGally skilled 


types, and food provided by Mrs. 
Ross, the new Lady Superintendent, 
helped all to survive. 
October 23rd. 

The Boarders' Dance . . . remem- 
ber your first blind date for the 
"Wedd's-Seaton's Dance". The Pre- 
fect that made you go, and the meet- 
ing, when SHE arrived with some 
other little girls from Havergal, BSS 
or Branksome in the library or Front 
Hall. Once again all survived, some 
even admitted they enjoyed it. 
October 30th. 

The First Soccer Team met R.M.C. 
The past two years UCC has defeated 
R.M.C. seconds by the score of 8-0 
and 12-0. This year R.M.C sent their 
First Team AND UCC won 2-1. Mind 
you, you couldn't move in the Infirm- 
ary afterwards, but, licking its 
wound happily the Firsts ended a 
very good season. 
November 12th. 

The Stewards' Dance, once again 
only third Form and up may attend. 
The usual coffee parties, dinner par- 
ties and the Stewards' Dinner at 
Grant House given by Dr. and Mrs. 
Sowby, brought everyone to the "DO" 
in good humour. It was as usual a 
happy, pretty affair. 
November 13th. 

The Old Boys turned out victorious 
Rugby and Soccer Teams. Alex. Mc- 
Bain broke an ankle in the first quar- 
ter. His surgeon asked that he go to 
the Hospital for Sick Children for 
X-Rays and the cast and though 
Alex, complied, after being repaired, 
he went out that night — "flaming 
Youth"! By the way, the present 
generation of Little Big Four Champs 
are unanimous in agreeing that 
Bazos, Cork, Robinson, Sonny O'Sul- 

livan, Mathers, etc., had not yet been 
noticeably weakened by OLD AGE. 
November 14th 

Church Parade to St. Paul's . . . 
don't know if you have seen one re- 
cently . . UCC Battalion following 
the Q.O.R. from the Museum along 
Bloor, the ceremony at the Cenotaph, 
(this year our band played a sort of 
"hot" version of "Way Down Upon 
the Swanee River") as they arrived 
at the Church, I s'pose it is better 
than "The Old Oaken Bucket" or is 
it?). Each year some recent Old 
Boy says, "Barrow I never realized 
we looked like that, the kids are 
good!" or an ex-C.O. says, "Were we 
as smart passing the saluting base?", 
and we can nearly always answer 
November 16th. 

The Cross Country provided the 
usual protests, enthusiasm, and im- 
mense amount of try by some of the 
Juniors and Intermediates. Panting 
small boys were dotted around on the 
Oval and bank, after their run. Two 
new records were established, and in 
the Senior John Elder (the non-rid- 
ing Elder) ran a very nice race. Cups 
and cakes in the Front Hall . . 

The Infirmary's private correspon- 
dance will try and list those you 
have asked about recently . . 

HARPO BALDWIN . . . sent an 
air mail letter with wonderful huge 
stamps and the address Cerro de 
Pasco Corp., Cassilla 208, Arequipa, 
Peru. A photo of Harpo in a cut- 
away coat, and of his pretty Peruvian 
bride wearing a delicate lace dress, 
accompanied a letter announcing 
they had married July 4th., honey- 
mooned in" the jungle of the Upper 
Amazon, a most fascinating region", 


then "lived in a cave in a lonely 
desert", and that, due to his work, he 
had become "an expert donkey hand- 
ler, perhaps the only Old Boy so 
qualified!" All goes well with the 
Harpo Baldwins. 

den, St. Josephs, Barbados, B.W.I. , 
wrote a wonderful long letter. He is 
increasingly busy with the family 
Company, and also in June was ap- 
pointed an extra A.D.C. to Governor. 
George views the proposed visit of 
Princess Margaret with what we 
gathered from his conservative re- 
marks as "enthusiastic alarm." 
George and Harpo from Peru both 
commented on UCC in the illustrated 
London News. George asked to be re- 
membered to all UCC types, and 
specially Amos, Dobson, Gillespie, 
and Holdroyd P. 

MALCOLM PETER . . is still in 
St. Lucia, B.W.I. 

PETER HARVIE "mad" .... in 
town for the Winter Fair (his inter- 
est, cattle) wandered up to UCC, 
the Cross Country Day, wearing a 
stockman's hat, scarlet flannel shirt, 
and corduroy pants. Believe me, he 
presented a colourful picture. Had 
he carried a cello instead of a metal 
crooked stick (for catching live stock 
. . silly!) he could hardly have 
created a greater sensation. Pete's 
address is "Lookout Farm", Barrie, 

DAVID GOODYEAR . . Chief Oper- 
ator C.K.F.H. says all is well with 
him in the radio world. 

JOHN LEVER Personel 

Branch, Department of Highways, 
popped in one night. When asked if 
he was worried about bridges, he 
said cheerfully "No, our department 

worried about people that worry 
about the bridges." Sounds a sens- 
ible system, or does it? 

NORTH HOGARTH . . a f ew days 
after Hurricane Hazel, wasn't sure 
what had happened to some of "his" 
bridges, but as Sue had just had a 
baby girl, Penelope, we felt he could- 
n't at that moment care less. A 
transient brief moment, as all ser- 
vices worked like mad to get things
